    Aft expanded balcony room

    The only vibration I ever felt was when we were coming into port and the pilot was putting the ship in reverse. I had a cat 11 wraparound on the Legend, I too was worried about a lot of movement on the aft part of the ship , but that is really my favorite part of ship now. I have sailed and stayed on the very front (hated it) and I have stayed in the middle (okay) I like the aft the best and will not sail anything but the aft for now on. Ana

    Back From Legend Cat 11 Aft Wraparound

    Catrin, I too am sorry we did not get to meet I was so exausted after the drive down to Florida, but I did make it down to the aft pool but it was after the muster drill. I agree w/ you about the piano bar he was rather boring. I TOTALLY agree with you about the cigar lounge, I complained about that every time I had to walk through it. They needed to place that somewhere else on the ship. I would stand right outside of it next to Truffles and listen to the 3 piece band because they were very good. The band at the pool was very good, but if you were out on the deck more than a day you knew exactly what they were going to play, but it was very entertaining. Lenny was not very good I did not like him very much his humor was a little stale. Martinique was a total waste of time. If you want to get ripped off spend time in Martinique. I really hate that we did not get to meet. I really met some wonderful people on this ship and it sounds like you and your husband would of been right there on the top of the list. I am planning my next cruise to Europe the Transatlantic and I can not wait. I hope you and your family have a wonderful happy holiday. Ana

    Hey Reese I went to the Boatyard in Barbados it is a very nice beach if you like to party, unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there, so we went downtown and shopped. Be very careful if you go downtown. There is a lot of police presence so that does help some, also be aware that Barbados' money is 2 of their dollar to one of ours, and a lot of merchants will tell you the price on something and they are quoting you the Barbados' dollar and not US and you must let them know or you will end up paying double because they do not correct you, this happened several times. I am sure this was just an honest mistake.;) You will LOVE your aft cabin. Have a great time and if you have anymore questions please ask. I apologize for any spelling or grammar mistakes it was a long day yesterday and I have not received must sleep, we decided to just drive home last night all the way and got home around 2am it was about a 700 hundred mile drive:eek:.

  7. Hello Everyone, I had a wonderful cruise and really enjoyed my room. Embarkment- Fort Lauderdale is not the place to get on your vessel, it is total mass confusion and I hate that part of cruising. I was with a handicapped couple and the process for them was just awful. I did not get to enjoy the only perk that Carnival gives those who have purchased a suite, but that was because their is way to much confusion and nobody knows what is going on. I will try never to book another cruise leaving out of that port. The porters do not know anything so do not ask them for any help, find someone from Carnival and you might get some help. Now with that out of the way let's get to the fun. Once on the ship I was pleasantly surprised this is a beautiful ship and I would cruise her again in a heartbeat. The staff was top of the line, with the exception of my cabin steward she was a little slack, but the cabin made up for it. I was just awe struck with this cabin and will probably never want to cruise in anything less. The cabin was just as it has been described on this board. The balcony was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only flaw was that people above could see right down on our balcony and Serene had posted that info about this floor (6th floor). We constantly had people wanting to peep in our room which was just fine, except for our neighbor that was constantly looking around the partion to see our balcony. I wanted to view a cat 12 and the room steward said: only on the last day, because of security reason". I totally understand that, she also informed us that she liked this room better than a cat 12 anyway. We had a great waitstaff in the dining room that made everything just great. Our headwaiter was Zsolt and his asst. was Imade they were wonderful and I could only say wonderful things about them. The Islands St. Maartin was absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!!!!! We had plans to do the Lord Shelfield thing, but in our e-mails we must of mis-communicated about island time and ship time and we missed the boat by an hour:(. I was really looking forward to this and the boat looked awesome as it sailed away. Oh well, we found a beach and it was just fine. Warning::::: The sun is very strong on this island and we got so burned just from walking around town. I have an olive complexion and had 30SPF and still burned:eek: . Barbados has very beautiful beaches, but if you go to the downtown area ladies watch your purses and/or backpacks. Someone attempted to pickpocket me on two occasions, so ladies just be careful. Martinque I would never go to this island again. The cab drivers will try to rip you off. It should not cost you more than 2 dollars to go downtown and 2 dollars to the ferry. You can take the ferry to any beach for 10 dollars. These cab drivers are very deceptive and I wouldn't trust them with anything, and most of them do not speak english. I would brush up on your French before going to this island. If you go downtown there is a Farmers Market and it is just massive you would enjoy this. There is also a beautiful church downtown don't miss these two things if you go downtown. Ship: I would sail her again. The staff was wonderful and very attentive to your every need. If your planning to sail on her I hope you have a wonderful time and if you have any questions please feel free to ask. Happy Trails

    Legend S. Caribbean out of Fort Lauderdale

    [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=purple]I am booked for this cruise the day after Thanksgiving. I haven't found a roll call for it yet, maybe it is to early. I have heard a few things about it, and they were all positive. I booked it because I like to sail that time of year and I have never been to those particular ports, plus it is an 8 day instead of 7 I wanted the extra day. I am sure a lot more people have been on this cruise, if you have we would love to hear from you!!!!!:) [/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#800080][/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#800080]Ana[/color][/size][/font]

    I Won't Book Another One With Them!!!

    [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=darkorchid]It's just me again, I wanted to update all of you on the latest.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc][/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc]The TA e-mailed me this morning and said that she had received my messages and she was sorry she hasn't gotten back to me sooner, but she has been working on some big cruise set up with the Food Network and Paula Dean and has been very busy. She asked if I would be interested in going, can you believe the nerve of her???[/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc][/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc]That is about all she said, she never answered any of the questions that I had inquired about. She sent a confirmationon my payment, but said that I never purchased any insurance.:eek: Well, if I never purchased any insurance I sure would like to know where my $198.00 dollars went to???????????[/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc][/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc]So, I e-mailed her back and told her what I think in a very polite manner. The saga continues.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc][/color][/size][/font] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][color=#9932cc]Ana:mad: [/color][/size][/font]

    I Won't Book Another One With Them!!!

    I did receive a cheapier rate, but believe me it was only a few dollars because of the room I got. I still believe customer service needs to be #1 if you are going to make it now days, like another poster said their is plenty of competition out there. I like to shop for bargains even if it means only dollars, but just a few dollars won't make a difference next time. I also like to give people the benefit of the doubt. This TA is from a national agency all over the US. They supposedly have the reputation of having the highest customer service and the best rates. Ana

    I Won't Book Another One With Them!!!

    Thanks for all the responses. I called my TA today and ask to talk to -----and she was not there, the girl ask me if she could help, so I told her the story. She was very apologitic and said that she would check on everything that I had requested, before I hung up the phone I specifically told her I did not want to speak to the same person I had been dealing with in the past and she said no problem and that she would call me right back. Well, 4 hours later I receive a call and guess who it is???????????? Yes, you guessed it, it was the same lady I had been talking to prior to this morning. I was livid.I asked her where was ------ and she said that she would not be returning until tomorrow night. I will write an e-mail to this TA tonight and then call her tomorrow night. To answer the question of why I have used this TA 4 times, the first time was okay, but the 2nd, 3rd, and now the 4th have not been pleasant. I have used them, because I have shopped around and they have come up with the best price. I am also big with customer service and expect to be treated right when I am spending money in any establishment. I will no longer use them and do not mind to spend a few extra dollars to be treated right. I will keep all of you updated on this situation and again, thank you all for all your kind words. Ana :)
  15. I just wanted to vent with all of you today. I booked a cruise through a TA and have gotten terrible service. I have booked a cruise with Carnival on the Legend for Nov. 24th. I have no beef with Carnival this will be my 4th cruise with Carnival and I have always been very pleased with Carnival. I have used this TA every time I have booked a cruise. They are very good when you are trying to decide on a cruise, but once you decide and send in your deposit you are forgotten. I booked a suite this time and had asked about insurance, I never got a response from them. I finally did my own research and called them and told them what I wanted and made my final payment. I was told I would be sent the info on the insurance along with a receipt for payment, this was 3 weeks ago. There is a lot more to this story, but I would be typing forever, and I know this may sound trivial to some of you, but the lack of service here is uncalled for. I am however going to call the owner of the agency this morning and give her a piece of my mind. Thank you all for reading, and if you have any suggestions please feel free to share them with me. No, I will not book another one with them, and I am planning to book one on the Liberty to Europe. Ana
